A lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California on behalf of all those who purchased Restoration common stock pursuant or traceable to the Company’s Initial Public Offering (the “IPO” or “Offering”) that commenced on October 12, 2017 and closed on October 16, 2017. The case, Guerrini v. Restoration Robotics, Inc. et al., No. 18-cv-03712 was filed on June 21, 2018, and has been assigned to Judge Edward John Davila.

A class action has been filed against Restoration Robotics, Inc. (“HAIR”), National Securities Corporation (“National Securities”) and others. The complaint alleges that Restoration Robotics negligently issued untrue statements of material facts in, and omitted to state material facts required to be started from, the prospectus issued in connection with the Initial Public Offering (“IPO”).  At the time of the IPO, Restoration Robotics sold approximately 4 million shares at a price of $7.00 per share.  Restoration Robotics stock has dropped dramatically trading under $3.00 a share on June 22, 2018.

National Securities served as an underwriter for the Company’s IPO agreeing to purchase 2,145,000 shares of the Company common stock, exclusive any over-allotment option.  National Securities previously served as Restoration Robotics investment banker raising several million dollars in a Reg D offering in 2016.  According to the complaint, National Securities collected fees from commissions and discounts in excess of $1,100,000 in the IPO.

According to the class action complaint, Restoration Robotics was incorporated in 2002 under the laws of the State of Delaware.  At the time of the IPO, the Company also had three wholly-owned subsidiaries: (i) Restoration Robotics, Inc. Limited, (ii) Restoration Robotics Europe Limited, Incorporated, and (iii) Restoration Robotics Korea Yuhan Hoesa, Incorporated.

Silver Law Group settles a Class Action Complaint on behalf of a group of investors which generally alleged Regions Bank assisted U.S. Pension Trust Corp (“USPT”) in the sale of unregistered securities and failed to properly disclose the high fees and costs of the program. Plaintiffs pursued a class action because many investors were located internationally and a class action was an appropriate vehicle to pursue damages.  The SEC had previously charged USPT with violating the federal securities laws and entered judgment against USPT in September 2010.  Plaintiffs alleged Defendants violated the Florida Securities and Investor Protection Act and aided and abetted the unregistered sale of securities, amongst other claims.

The victims were primarily from Latin America and over 5,000 investors were identified as potential class members.  A United States District Court Judge in Miami appointed Silver Law Group and its co-counsel as attorneys to represent the Plaintiffs.  The Plaintiffs further alleged Regions advised USPT on the design and content of marketing materials, had a role in drafting documents, participated in sales conventions and was paid as the trustee on USPT trust accounts.  The class action ultimately settled for approximately $13 million.  The case was reported by the Daily Business Review.
